Borussia Dortmund man on Anfield radar.
Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has been identified as a prospective Liverpool target by Anfield director of football Damien Comolli as the Frenchman scouts possible signings to help beef up the club’s attacking options.
The 22 year old Polish international helped his side to a Bundesliga triumph last term and has continued his good form into this term, already netting 14 goals during the current campaign. The Warsaw born youngster has managed to keep out Paraguayan hot-shot Lucas Barrios whilst helping to keep Jurgen Klopp’s side in touch with pace-setters Bayern Munich.
Liverpool have managed to score just 18 goals in 15 Premier League games and have had to overly depend on Luis Suarez a great deal, not least because when paired alongside Andy Carroll or Dirk Kuyt the Merseyside club struggle to break down the opposition.
Kenny Dalglish does not have a great many attacking options at present and may feel that the strong physical presence of a player like Robert Lewandowski alongside Suarez and keeping Carroll on his toes, may well be the right course of action as the Scot looks to push his side back into the Premier League top four.
Liverpool will attempt to make an lure Lewandowski when the transfer window re-opens next month and the fact that his Dortmund side crashed out of the Champions League at the first hurdle may well make such a move more realistic.
The club’s owners forked out over £100m on new signings in 2011 and Dalglish will be looking to the Anfield board to finance further moves in January to help the club secure a coveted Champions League spot.
Dortmund boss Klopp faces very real interest in a number of his star performers with the likes of Neven Subotic, Mario Gotze and Shinji Kagawa all said to be heavily linked with interest from Europe’s elite and the Signal Iduna Park boss may have his work cut out keeping the nucleus of his successful side together. Last summer he lost Nuri Sahin to Real Madrid, and he must fear others may follow.
